Black Panther sets Marvel box office record for advance ticket sales, topping Captain America: Civil War

'Black Panther' Poised To Pounce On BO: Advance Ticket Sales Beating 'Captain America: Civil War'

The tale will see the Black Panther struggle to deal with a monstrous threat to Wakanda while balancing the need to unite his people in the wake of political discord. Black Panther is already going strong in early ticket sales, with its theatrical release just over a month away.

Fandango said a survey of more than 8,000 moviegoers showed that "Black Panther" was voted as one of the year's top two most anticipated movies, ranking second to Disney-Marvel's "Avengers: Infinity War", which includes numerous "Black Panther" characters, and Boseman was voted as the most anticipated comic book hero in a standalone movie.

It's learned Black Panther tickets sales are actually ahead of Captain America: Civil War!

Now, if the hero's long-overdue standalone film should match or pass Captain America: Civil War (which had an opening weekend was $179M) it would become the highest opening of any February release, beating up Deadpool (132.4M) and Fifty Shades of Grey ($85.1M).

Black Panther will be in cinemas on 12 February, 2018. The first Deadpool film now holds that record with $132.4 million. Its love of the comics, while also being a specific vision from the creative team right down to Chadwick Boseman's accent, stands out even among Marvel movies.

The key to appreciating the trailer is understanding that most of the new footage is actually an extended look at things that we've seen before.

But I may be getting ahead of myself. Currently, non-Disney estimates before tracking believe Black Panther will post a $80M-$85M start with a possible shot at $100M-plus. If Black Panther has close to Civil War's momentum it could be February's biggest opening ever.

Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) springs into action when an old enemy threatens the fate of his nation and the world.
